Local, great food, great service!

Great breakfast and great service, I had the breakfast burrito and it was very good, my kids loved the pancakes and the food is way more than you can eat.

Exhausted from a 4-hour kayak trip down the Sturgeon River, we were happy just to sit down and have someone bring us food! The servers were super nice, and the atmosphere plain but lively. But back to the food. Not bad, but not great either. The fish was ok, the ribs were ok, the little bowl of corn was ok.... More

Breakfast at this restaurant was very good. Lots of food. Decent prices. The pancakes were awesome -- and HUGE. They were the size of the plate. My 14 year old boy thought he could eat 5, and he was done after 3, hehe. We'll eat here again, if we go back to Indian River.

Very comfortable, down-home atmosphere. We were seated right away and the service was great. Very friendly waitress. We had breakfast and the food was great. Good variety of choices on the menu. Would eat there again when in Indian River.

Ate lunch here weekend of August 15-16,2015. Servise was very friendly, efficient. Room was very busy when I arrived, but I got seated immediately! Burger was great, onions rings a disappointment, I thought they were handmade,,only frozen,,never again. I ordered food to take home and when you order pie in teh restaurant, you get a huge piece(about a 1/4 pie).... More

A friend suggested Wilson's and I'm glad I listened! A big group of us went here Sunday night and got right in (which doesn't always happen at restaurants, there were 11 of us). Sue was our server (she was GREAT, very funny and friendly) and suggested the dinner special which was a chicken stew. It was so tasty and definitely... More

This looks like it might be a good place for breakfast or brunch. We stopped here for dinner. Service was not great. The servings were huge, but were not flavorful. I had the turkey dinner. The turkey seemed to come from a turkey roll, not a true tom turkey breast. The mashed potatoes were probably homemade (lumpy), but were ice... More
